Executive Council


Esmeralda Lopez


Hi! My name is Esmeralda, and I'm a senior majoring in political science and history with a minor in Spanish. Since my freshman year, UNT Moot Court has been the highlight of my college career. This team has taught me so much, and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to give back. When I'm not reading case law or running my argument, I enjoy watching bad reality TV (Dance Moms or Love Island, anyone?), playing Stardew Valley, and going on walks. I can't wait to help shape a new team over the course of this next season, and I hope to see you try out!


Ossmar Cardiel


My name is Ossmar Cardiel, and I'm a senior currently pursuing a degree in political science and a minor in sociology. This will also be my fourth year on the team. I'm very excited to have the opportunity to give back, and to help the team grow more this year! Outside of moot court, I like to go hiking, play guitar, and read. I'm looking forward to meeting and working with all of you!


Joanna Boyer

Vice President

My name is Joanna Boyer and I'm a Senior working towards a double major in Political Science and English. This will be my third year on the UNT Moot Court team and I'm excited to work with the rest of the board to help us transition back in person. Moot Court has been a pivotal part of my life since high school and there is nothing I enjoy more than analyzing case law with my team. Outside of moot court, I like to read and spend time with friends. I'm looking forward to making this year with UNT Moot Court great!


Alaia Snell


My name is Alaia Snell, and I am a sophomore double-majoring in English Literature and Economics and double-minoring in Spanish and History. This is my second year in Moot Court, and I am beyond ecstatic to continue serving this incredible organization as an executive councilor. Through advocacy, research, and the support of our team, moot has easily become a second home to me that I look forward to welcoming others in. Outside of moot, I enjoy collecting books, going hiking, practicing the viola, and gardening. I can’t wait to work with you all next season!
